The Eagles added 9 undrafted free agents at the conclusion of the draft yesterday bringing their total haul of players from the process to 17. We've done individual posts on all of the draft picks, but I figured it would be worth taking a quick look at some of these undrafted guys, who in some cases are a good bit more obscure than that the guys who were actually drafted.
Each of these is an excerpt from a draft profile, click the links to read more if you're interested.
Jake Knott scouting report
Knott is an impressive player displaying very good overall athleticism, agility and running ability. He has good size and bulk for the position. He can cover a lot of ground and does a very good job in pursuit to the ball carrier in run defense. He is a willing run defender close to the line of scrimmage as he shows the desire to hit the hole hard and take on blockers so his teammates can make plays.
After splitting time with another running back as a junior, Maysonet finished his college career with an oustanding senior season. Although he lacks ideal size, his performance in 2012 at least showed that for one season he can handle being a full-time feature back. An instinctive runner who finds hole/crease well, Maysonet can make sharp cut and has an explosive burst through the hole. He runs aggressively with the ball, can run with good pad level and has the strength and balance to run through arm/grab tackles to gain yards after contact.Damion Square scouting report
Overall, Damion Square would make a solid fifth round selection and adding depth to a 34 style defense in the NFL and could play the five-technique when defense lines up in Nickel.
Brad Wing Scouting report
His sophomore season he had 59 punts, averaging 44.8 with 21 punts inside the 20 compared to 10 touchbacks.
Russell Sheppard Draft Profile – NFL.com
At LSU's pro day, Sheppard ran the 40-yard dash twice in 4.46 seconds. He had a 38 1/2-inch vertical, a 10-foot-2 broad jump, a 4.37-second short shuttle, a 7.09-second three-cone drill and did eight reps of 225 pounds on the bench. At the pro day, he did both wide receiver and defensive back workouts, and scouts think Sheppard's best position in the NFL could be at defensive back.
Kyle Quinn, C, Arizona, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
Quinn isn't a flashy athlete but he's shown the ability to accurately place the shotgun snap while showing the lateral agility, balance and quick hands to be steady in pass protection. He'll need to show improved strength and mobility blocking on the move this season but is the unquestioned leader up front for the Wildcats and was recognized by Pac-12 coaches a season ago with honorable mention all-conference honors.
Mixed in with a good number of short, speedy runners, Tucker brings the weight to the table. He was forced to wait until his senior year to claim the majority of starts, but Tucker earned his fair share of carries every season. A team looking for a bigger back in the later rounds could certainly turn their attention to Tucker.
